The fight continues to re-open Forest Road (FR) 708 from Strawberry to Fossil Creek. As you all know, Cindy and I attended a meeting/workshop last week with the Coconino National Forest rangers regarding Alternatives to re-open FR 708, We are pushing for Alternative E, which will allow OHV’s access to Fossil Creek via FR 708.
Besides attending this meeting, Cindy is a member of the Action Team Planning Group, which consists of Coconino Forest Service staff, engineers, business communities, NEPA representatives, etc. This is a private planning group, whereas the public is not invited. Cindy is on the Finance Committee, which is looking into the costs to maintain FR 708 and the Fossil Creek area.
As most of you know, our club was initially formed to join together to get FR 708 re-opened. It has now been 5 years since it’s closure, and we continue the fight. We want to thank you for all of your continued support and participation.
